Pair of Pears (6" x 6") oil on masonite
There is a bit of a shine to some of the brushstrokes, I should try to take another picture once the painting is dry. Here are some pears that are ready to cut up! I got some fresh pears for my birthday, I think I did this quick enough so I can still eat them. Below is a picture of the underpainting with the set-up in the background. I made some sketches after painting, trying to get a sense of the spotlight right over the still life.
I also got a twitter account to go with this blog, thought I might see what the fuss was about.
